Unlucky/Lucky 13: Will your luck hold-out in 2013?
The number 13 can mean different things to different people. In some cultures, the number is auspicious, heralding the blessings of the gods. In western culture, the opposite is true: youíre more likely to run afoul with the cosmos.
Whether unlucky or lucky, that number is significant.
I am looking for stories that feature the number 13. Whether that means your protagonist is 13 years old and has their luck turn around at a crucial moment in their lives, or maybe your story is set on a spaceship on a collision course with the thirteenth dimension; whatever the case may be, submit your story of ill or fair luck to be included in the SFFWorld.com forum memberís second annual, short-story anthology.
- You must be a member of SFFWorld.com in good standing (no strikes) for up to three months prior to submitting your story
- Science Fiction and/or Fantasy
- No existing (i.e. previously published) characters (or parodies)
- 2000-8000 words (firm)
- Single-spaced paragraphs with no-space (just like single-space) between paragraphs. Please, tag your formatting (ex., [ center]text to be centered[ /center]). Use a standard font like Times New Roman or Arial, in 12 pt. Preferred format is Google Document, but we can handle just about anything. However, we suggest Word DOC or DOCX if you donít use Google Documents. If all else fails, thereís always RTF format.
RIGHTS & COMPENSATION
I will take exclusive worldwide digital rights for 1 year, then non-exclusive worldwide digital rights for 1 more years. Payment is a flat $5 USD (paid via PayPal), plus an ebook copy of the anthology.
